A. Fire Safety
Clinkers
To provide reasonable fire safety, the following should be
given serious consideration:
Minerals and other non-combustible materials such as sand
will turn into a hard, glass-like substance called a clinker when
heated in the firepot.
• Install at least one smoke detector and CO monitor on each
floor of your home.
• Locate detectors away from the heating appliance and close
to the sleeping areas. • Follow the detector’s manufacturer’s placement and
installation instructions and maintain regularly. • Conveniently locate a fire extinguisher to contend with small
fires.
• In the event of a hopper fire:
• Evacute the house immediately.
• Notify fire department.
B.Combustible/Non-Combustible Materials
• Combustible Material
Material made of or surfaced with wood, compressed
paper, plant fibers, plastics, or any material capable
of igniting and burning, whether flame-proofed or not,
plastered or unplastered.
• Non-combustible Material
Material which will not ignite and burn. Such materials are
those consisting entirely of steel, iron, brick, tile, slate,
glass or plasters, or any combination thereof.
Trees from different areas will vary in mineral content. That
is why some fuels produce more clinkers than others.
Moisture
Always burn dry fuel. Burning fuel with high moisture content
takes heat from the fuel and tends to cool the appliance,
robbing heat from your home. Damp pellet fuel can clog the
feed system.
Size
• Pellets are either 6 or 8mm in diameter
• Length should be no more that 38mm
• Pellet lengths can vary from lot to lot from the same
manufacturer
• Due to length variations, the flame height (feed rate) may
need adjusting occasionally. See page 10 for instructions.
Performance
• Higher ash content requires the ash drawer to be emptied
more frequently
• Hardwoods require more air to burn properly
• Premium wood pellets produce the highest heat output.
• Burning pellets longer than 38mm can cause an inconsistent
fuel feed rate and/or missed ignitions.
CAUTION! Tested and approved for wood pellets. Burning
of any other type of fuel voids your warranty.
• Firestop Non-combustible Sealant Material
Sealants which will not ignite and burn.
Storage
C. Fuel Material and Fuel Storage
Pellet fuel quality can greatly fluctuate. We recommend that
you buy fuel in multi-ton lots whenever possible. However,
we do recommend trying various brands before purchasing
multi-ton lots to ensure your satisfaction.
Fuel Material
• Wood pellets should be left in their original sealed bag until
using to prevent moisture absorption.
• Do not store any pellet fuel within the clearance
requirements or in an area that would hinder routine
cleaning and maintenance.
• Made from sawdust or wood by-products
• Depending on the source material it may have a high or
low ash content.
Higher Ash Content Material
• Hardwoods with a high mineral content
• Fuel that contains bark
• Standard grade pellets and high ash pellets
Lower Ash Content Material
• Softwoods
• Fuels with low mineral content
• Premium grade pellets
CAUTION! Do not burn fuel that contains an additive;
(such as soybean oil).
• May cause hopper fires
• Damage to product may result

D. General Operating Information
WARNING
1. Thermostat Calls For Heat
Fire Hazard.
Keep combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapors and liquids
clear of appliance.
• Do NOT store flammable materials in the appliance’s
vicinity.
• DO NOT USE GASOLINE, LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE,
CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO
START OR “FRESHEN UP” A FIRE IN THIS HEATER.
The appliance is like most modern furnaces; when the thermostat
calls for heat, your appliance will automatically light and deliver
heat. When the room is up to temperature and the thermostat is
satisfied, the red call light will shut off and the appliance will shut
down. The red call light is located behind the right access panel.
2. Heat Output Controls
• DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FLUIDS
SUCH AS GASOLINE, NAPHTHA OR ENGINE OIL.
This appliance is equipped with a heat output control switch
that has three settings or burn rates; low, medium and high. Figure 9.1.
The appliance will turn on and off as the thermostat demands. When the thermostat calls for heat, the appliance will always
start up on High. After burning approximately 4 minutes, the
appliance will then burn at the rate at which it was originally
set. If the appliance is set at one of the lower settings, it will
run quieter but takes longer to heat up an area than if it were
set at a higher burn rate. Regardless of the burn rate, when the area is warm enough to
satisfy the thermostat, the appliance will shut off.
• DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OF FLUIDS TO START THE
FIRE.
• Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in
use.
• Combustible materials may ignite.
E. Before Your First Fire
1. First, make sure your appliance has been properly installed
and that all safety requirements have been met. Pay
particular attention to the fire protection, venting and
thermostat installation instructions.
2. Double check that the ash drawer and firebox are empty!
3. Close the front door. CAUTION

F. Filling the Hopper with Fuel
a. Open the hopper lid and pull the lid towards you. b. Do not over fill the hopper. The lid must be completely
closed to maintain proper vacuum and for the feed motor
to operate. An error message will appear on the wall
control if the lid is not properly closed.
c. Remove any sawdust or fuel from the lid gasket after
refilling hopper.
d. Do not leave any part of the fuel bag on the appliance
after refilling hopper.
e. Store fuel away from the appliance to maintain proper
safe air clearance to combustibles.

G. Starting Your First Fire
1. A thermostat is required for proper operation of this
appliance. At this time, fill the hopper with pellets, set
the thermostat to its lowest setting. Plug the power cord
into nearby outlet.
2. The exhaust blower will stay on for approximately 18
minutes even though the thermostat is not calling for
heat. This is normal.
3. Locate the heat output control switch on the lower right
side of the firebox behind decorative front door. Set to the
HIGH setting and then adjust the thermostat to its highest
setting. The red call light will be on which is located on
the top of the junction box behind the right access panel. This indicates the thermostat is calling for heat. Figure
10.1.
4. The fuel feed system and the igniter should now be on.
5. For your first fire it will be necessary to press the reset
button once per minute until pellets start to drop into the
firepot, then press button 1 more time. This will fill the
feed system and allow the appliance to begin dropping
pellets. The appliance will continue to run as long as the
thermostat is calling for heat.
6. Once the appliance has ignited, let it burn for approximately
15 minutes, then set the thermostat to the desired room
temperature. Adjust the heat output control switch to the
desired setting.
H. Fire Characteristics
A properly adjusted fire with the heat output control button
set on “HIGH” has a short active flame pattern that extends
out of the firepot approximately 102mm. If the fire has tall flames with black tails and seems somewhat
lazy, the feed rate will need to be reduced. If the fire is not 102mm tall, increase the feed rate. A medium
and low setting will give a shorter flame. The flame will rise
and fall somewhat. This is normal.
I. Feed Rate Adjustment Instructions
The feed adjustment control rod is factory set, and should be
adequate for most fuels. The control rod will slide by only
loosening the wing screw.
However, if the flame height is too high or too low, you will
need to adjust the feed rate. Wait until the appliance has been
burning for 15 minutes before making your adjustments and
allow 15 minutes for feed adjustment to take effect. Make
adjustments in approximately 12.7mm increments.
1.
Loosen the wing screw. Figure 10.2
2. Adjust the fuel adjustment control rod towards to the right
and up to increase the feed rate and flame height or to
the left and down to decrease the feed rate and flame
height.
3. Re-tighten the wing screw.
CAUTION

J. Ignition Cycles
K. Clear Space
1. At the beginning of each ignition cycle, it is normal to see
some smoke in the firebox. The smoke will stop once
the fire starts.
2. The convection blower will automatically turn on after your
appliance has reached the set temperature. This blower transfers heat from your appliance into the
room, and will continue to run after the thermostat has
stopped calling for heat until the appliance has cooled
down.
3. Occasionally the appliance may run out of fuel and shut
itself down. When this happens, the red call light will be
on. See Figure 10.1 on page 10.1.
To restart it, fill the hopper and press the reset button. When you press the reset button the red call light will go
out. Release the button and the light will come back on. You should see a fire shortly. If not, follow the instructions on page 10, “Starting Your
First Fire”.
WARNING! RISK OF FIRE! Do NOT place combustible
objects in front of the appliance. High temperatures may
ignite clothing, furniture or draperies. Maintain a minimum
clearance of 914mm in front of appliance.
Mantel: Avoid placing candles and other heat-sensitive
objects on mantel or hearth. Heat may damage these
objects.
NOTICE: Clearances may only be reduced by means approved by the regulatory authority having jurisdiction.
WARNING! RISK OF FIRE! Keep combustible materials,
gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids clear of
appliance.
• Do NOT store flammable materials in the appliance’s
vicinity.
• Do NOT use gasoline, lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal
lighter fluid or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire
in this heater.
Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in
use as combustible materials may ignite.
WARNING
Fire Risk

Maintaining & Servicing Your Appliance
C. General Maintenance
A. Proper Shutdown Procedure
1. Types of Fuel
CAUTION
Depending on the type of fuel you are burning will dictate how
often you have to clean your firepot. Shock and Smoke Hazard
If the fuel you are burning has a high dirt or ash content it may
be necessary to clean the firepot more than once a day. • Turn down thermostat, let appliance completely
cool and exhaust blower must be off. Now you
can unplug appliance before servicing.
• Smoke spillage into room can occur if appliance
is not cool before unplugging.
Dirty fuel will cause clinkers to form in the firepot. A clinker is
formed when dirt, ash or a non-burnable substance is heated to
1093°C and becomes glass-like. • Risk of shock if appliance not unplugged before
servicing appliance.
Follow the detailed instructions found in this
section for each step listed in the chart below.

4. Cleaning Ash Pan/Drawer
2. Cleaning Firepot with Cleaning Rod & Firepot
Clean-Out Tool
•
•
•
Frequency: Daily or more often as needed
By: Homeowner
a.The appliance must be in complete shutdown and
cool and the exhaust blower off. NOTE: If you are
just cleaning the firepot, there is no need to unplug the
insert.
b.Pull firepot cleaning rod OUT and IN a couple of times
to help shake debris loose. See Figure 12.1 on page
12.
•
If rod is hard to pull, it may be necessary to use your
firepot clean-out tool to chip away material that has built
up on the bottom plate of the firepot and to push out any
clinkers. Larger clinkers may have to be removed from
the top of the firepot. Corn clinkers can be especially
difficult to break up.
c.The firepot floor plate must be fully closed when finished. See Figure 11.1 on page 11.
Frequency: Weekly or every 5 bags or more
frequently depending on ash build
By: Homeowner
Locate the ash pan/drawer underneath the firepot and
slide the ash drawer straight out. Empty into a noncombustible container and re-install ash pan/drawer.
5. Disposal of Ashes
•
•
Frequency: As needed
By: Homeowner
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a
tight-fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should
be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground,
well away from all combustible materials, pending final
disposal.
If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise
locally dispersed, they should be retained in the
closed container until all cinders have been thoroughly
cooled.
3. Ash Removal from Firebox
•
•
Frequency: Weekly or 5 bags or more frequently
depending on ash build-up
By: Homeowner
WARNING
a.There must not be any hot ashes in the firebox during
cleaning so allow the appliance to completely cool. The firebox ash should be removed every time the
exhaust path is cleaned. Frequent cleaning of the ash
in the firebox will help slow down the build-up of ash
in the exhaust blower and vent system.
b.Plug in your appliance, if unplugged, and turn the
thermostat on and immediately shut it off to start the
exhaust blower on its cycle time. It will pull fly ash out
the exhaust instead of into the room.
c.Open door. There are 2 cleaning slide plates to the
left and right of the firepot with finger holes. Pull both

8. Cleaning the Hopper
•
•
•
•
Frequency: Weekly or every 15 bags or more fre
quently depending on ash build-up
By: Homeowner
Frequency: Monthly or after burning 50 bags of fuel
By: Homeowner
After burning approximately 1 ton of fuel you will need
to clean the hopper to prevent sawdust build-up. WARNING
A combination of sawdust and pellets on the auger
reduces the amount of fuel supply to the firepot. This
can result in nuisance shutdowns and mis-starts.
Heat exchanger cleaning rods may be warm
to the touch. For safety purposes wear
gloves.
Do not pull heat exchanger cleaning rods
while appliance is operating.
Push cleaning rods IN when done, DO NOT
leave cleaning rods OUT. Injury can occur.
The amount of ash buildup in the firepot will be a good
guide to determine how often you should clean the heat
exchangers.
a. Allow the appliance to completely cool down before
pulling the cleaning rods. Turn the thermostat on and
then immediately off to start the exhaust blower on its
cycle time. It will pull fly ash out the exhaust instead
of into the room.
b. Locate the 2 exposed rods directly underneath the heat
exchanger tubes. Figure 14.1.
c.To clean, pull the rods straight out until it stops,
approximately 203mm. Slide the rods OUT and IN a
couple of times.
a. The appliance must be in complete shutdown. Allow the appliance to completely cool down.
b. Empty the hopper of any remaining pellets.
c. Vacuum the hopper and feed tube.
NOTE: Hearth & Home Technologies recommends to
use a heavy duty vacuum cleaner specifically
designed for solid fuel appliance cleaning.

10. Soot and Fly Ash: Formation & Need for Removal
in Exhaust Venting System.
•
•
Frequency: Yearly or more frequently depending on
ash build-up.
By: Qualified Service Technician/Homeowner
Be sure the appliance is allowed to cool, has been
unplugged and the exhaust blower is off.
The products of combustion will contain small particles
of fly ash. The fly ash will collect in the exhaust venting
system and restrict the flow of the flue gases. 14. Preparing Firebox for Non-Burn Season
•
•
Frequency: Yearly at the end of the heating season
By: Homeowner
a.Be sure the appliance is allowed to cool, has been
unplugged and the exhaust blower is off.
b.Remove all ash from the firebox and vacuum thoroughly.
c. Paint all exposed steel, including cast-iron. At start-up if there is incomplete combustion, or if there
is a shutdown or incorrect operation of the appliance it
will lead to some soot formation. This will collect in the
exhaust venting system.
• Use the Touch-Up paint supplied with the appliance;
or;
• Purchase paint from your local dealer. • Must use a high-temperature paint made specificially for heating appliances.
The venting (chimney) system may need to be cleaned at
least once a year or more often depending upon the quality of your fuel or if there is a lot of horizontal pipe sections. Ash will build up more quickly in the horizontal sections.

D. High Ash Fuel Content Maintenance
•
•
Frequency: As needed
By: Homeowner
Poor quality pellet fuel, or lack of maintenance, can create
conditions that make the firepot fill quickly with ashes and
clinkers. This condition makes the appliance susceptible to overfilling
the firepot with pellets which may result in smoking, sooting
and possible hopper fires. Figure 16.1 shows an example
where the firepot overfills, pellets back up into the feed tube
and ash has accumulated in the firebox. Pellets Back Up
In Feed Tube
Firepot Overfills
Ash Build Up in Firebox
Figure 16.1
An inefficient and non-economical method of burning of fuel
caused by poor quality pellet fuel is shown in Figure 16.2.
The correct flame size when good quality, premium pellet
fuel is burned is shown in Figure 16.3.
Incorrect
If the ash buildup exceeds the half way point in the firepot
IMMEDIATE ATTENTION AND CLEANING IS REQUIRED.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
• High ash fuels, or lack of maintenance, can
cause the firepot to overfill. Follow proper

Troubleshooting for Homeowner
A. Frequently Asked Questions
ISSUES
SOLUTIONS
1. Metallic noise.
1. Noise is caused by metal expanding and contracting as
it heats up and cools down, similar to the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not
affect the operation or longevity of your appliance.
2. White ash buildup on glass.
2. This is normal. Clean the glass using any non-abrasive
glass cleaner.
3. Glass has buildup of black soot
3. Excessive build-up of ash. See solution #4. The lower
burn settings will produce more ash, the higher burn
settings produce less. The more it burns on low the
more frequent cleaning of the glass is required.
4. Glass has turned dirty.
3. Excessive build up of ash. The lower burn settings will
produce more ash, the higher burn settings produce
less. The more it burns on low the more frequent cleaning of the glass is required.
5. Fire has tall flames with black tails and is lazy.
4. The feed rate needs to be reduced or the firepot needs
cleaning. Heat exchanger or exhaust blower needs
cleaning.
6. Smokey start-up or puffs of smoke from the airwash. 5. Either the firepot is dirty or there is too much fuel at
start-up and not enough air. Close down feed rate 1/4
(6mm) inch at a time until this no longer happens.
6. Large flame at start-up.
6. This is normal. Flame will settle down once the fire is
established.
NOTICE: Odors and vapors are released during initial operation due to the curing of high temperature paint. Open windows for air circulation. Odors may be irritating to sensitive individuals.

Installer’s Guide
A. Design, Installation & Location Considerations
Since pellet exhaust can contain ash, soot or sparks, you
must consider the location of:
1. Appliance Location
•
•
•
•
•
•
NOTICE: Check building codes prior to installation.
• Installation MUST comply with all local building codes
and regulations including those referring to national and
European standards.
• Consult insurance carrier, local building inspector, fire
officials or authorities having jurisdiction over restrictions,
installation inspection and permits.
It is a good idea to plan your installation on paper, using exact
measurements for clearances and floor protection, before
actually beginning the installation. Location of the appliance
and chimney will affect performance.
Consideration must be given to:
• Safety, convenience, traffic flow
• Placement of the chimney and chimney connector and to
minimize the use of chimney offsets. • Place the appliance where there will be a clear passage
for a Listed chimney through the ceiling and roof (vertical) or through exterior wall (horizontal). • Installing the required outside air kit will affect the location of the vent termination.
Recommended Location:
• Above peak
Windows
Air Intakes
Air Conditioner
Overhang, soffits, porch roofs, adjacent walls
Landscaping, vegetation
Horizontal or vertical vent termination
When locating vent and venting termination, the ideal location is to vent above roof line when possible. This minimizes the affects of wind loading.

Vent Information
B. Avoiding Smoke and Odors
A. Venting Termination Requirements
CAUTION
Do not terminate vent in any enclosed or semi-enclosed
area such as a carport, garage, attic, crawl space, under a
sun deck or porch, narrow walkway or closely fenced area,
or any location that can build up a concentration of fumes
such as a stairwell, covered breezeway, etc.
1. Termination must exhaust above air inlet elevation. It is
strongly recommended that at least 1.5m of vertical
pipe be installed when appliance is vented directly
through a wall. This will create a natural draft, which
will help prevent the possibility of smoke or odor venting
into the home during a power outage. It will also keep
exhaust from causing a nuisance or hazard by exposing
people or shrubs to high temperatures. The safest and
preferred venting method is to extend the vent vertically
through the roof.
2. Distance from doors and opening windows, or gravity or
ventilation air inlets into building:
a. Not less than 1.2m below;
b. Not less than 1.2m horizontally from;
c. Not less than 305mm above.
3. Distance from permanently closed windows;
a.Not less than 305mm below; horizontally from or
above.
4. Distance between bottom of termination and grade should
be 305mm minimum. This is conditional upon plants in
the area, and nature of grade surface. The grade surface must be a non-combustible material (i.e., rock, dirt). The grade surface must not be lawn. Distance between
bottom of termination and public walkway should be 2.13m minimum.
5. Distance to combustible materials must be 610mm
minimum. This includes adjacent buildings, fences,
protruding parts of the structure, roof overhang, plants
and shrubs, etc.
6. Termination Cap Location (Home Electrical Service)
• Side-to-side clearance is to be the same as minimum
clearance to vinyl inside corners.
• Clearance of a termination cap below electrical service
shall be the same as minimum clearance to vinyl soffits.
• Clearance of a termination cap above electrical service
will be 305mm minimum.
Negative Pressure, Shut-Down and Electrical Power
Failure
To reduce the probability of back-drafting or burn-back in
the pellet appliance during power failure or shut down conditions, it must be able to draft naturally without exhaust
blower operation. Negative pressure in the house will resist this natural draft
if not accounted for in the pellet appliance installation.
Heat rises in the house and leaks out at upper levels. This
air must be replaced with cold air from outdoors which
flows into lower levels of the house. Vents and chimneys into basements and lower levels of the
house can become the conduit for air supply and reverse
under these conditions.
Outside Air
An outside air kit is recommended in all installations. The
Outside Air Kit must be ordered seperately.
Per your local building codes, consideration must be given
to combustion air supply to all combustion appliances. Failure to supply adequate combustion air for all appliance
demands may lead to backdrafting of those and other
appliances. When the appliance is roof vented (strongly recommended): The air intake is best located on the exterior wall oriented towards the prevailing wind direction during the
heating season.
When the appliance is side-wall vented:
The air intake is best located on the same exterior wall
as the exhaust vent outlet and located lower on the wall
than the exhaust vent outlet.
The outside air supply kit can supply most of the demands
of the pellet appliance, but consideration must be given to
the total house demand. House demand may consume the air needed for the appliance. It may be necessary to add additional ventilation to
the space in which the pellet appliance is located. Consult with your local heating professional to determine
the ventilation demands for your house.
• Location of the vent termination must not obstruct or
interfere with access to the electrical service.
Page 22
7069-101B
October 27, 2011
R
Castile & Santa Fe CE Insert
Vent Configurations
To reduce probability of reverse drafting during shut-down
conditions Hearth & Home Technologies strongly recommends:
• Installing the pellet vent with a minimum vertical run
of 1.52m. Preferably terminating above the roof line.
• Installing the outside air kit at least 1.22m below the
vent termination.
To prevent soot damage to exterior walls of the house and
to prevent re-entry of soot or ash into the house:
• Maintain specified clearances to windows, doors and
air inlets, including air conditioners.
• Vents should not be placed below ventilated soffits. Run the vent above the roof.
• Avoid venting into alcove locations.
• Vents should not terminate under overhangs, decks
or onto covered porches.
• Maintain minimum clearance of 305mm from the vent
termination to the exterior wall. If you see deposits
developing on the wall, you may need to extend this
distance to accommodate your installation conditions.
C.Negative Pressure
WARNING! Risk of Asphyxiation! Negative pressure can
cause spillage of combustion fumes and soot.
Negative pressure results from the imbalance of air available for the appliance to operate properly. It can be strongest in lower levels of the house.
Causes include:
• Exhaust fans (kitchen, bath, etc.)
• Range hoods
• Combustion air requirements for furnaces, water heaters
and other combustion appliances
• Clothes dryers
• Location of return-air vents to furnace or air conditioning
• Imbalances of the heating/cooling air handling system
• Upper level air leaks such as:
- Recessed lighting
- Attic hatch
- Duct leaks
October 27, 2011
To minimize the effects of negative air pressure:
• Install the outside air kit with the intake facing prevailing
winds during the heating season
• Ensure adequate outdoor air for all combustion appliances
and exhaust equipment
• Ensure furnace and air conditioning return vents are not
located in the immediate vicinity of the appliance
• Avoid installing the appliance near doors, walkways or
small isolated spaces
• Recessed lighting should be a “sealed can” design
• Attic hatches weather stripped or sealed
• Attic mounted duct work and air handler joints and seams
taped or sealed
On nominal heat output the combustion blower operates at
2053 rpm developing 0.33 m^3/s. This is the minimum requirement for the supply of combustion air. D.Draft
Draft is the pressure difference needed to vent appliances
successfully. When an appliance is drafting successfully, all
combustion byproducts are exiting the home through the
chimney.
Install through the warm airspace enclosed by the building envelope. This helps to produce more draft, especially
during lighting and die-down of the fire.
Considerations for successful draft include:
• Preventing negative pressure
• Location of appliance and chimney
To measure the draft or negative pressure on your appliance
use a magnahelic or a digital pressure gauge capable of
reading 0 - .13 inches of water column (W.C.). The appliance should be running on high for at least 15
minutes for the test.
With the stove running on high you should have a negative
pressure equal to or greater than the number given in the
chart below. If you have a lower reading than you find on
the chart, your appliance does not have adequate draft to
burn the fuel properly.
Minimum Vacuum Requirements:
.095
NOTICE: Hearth & Home Technologies assumes no
responsibility for the improper performance of the chimney
system caused by:
• Inadequate draft due to environmental conditions
• Downdrafts
• Tight sealing construction of the structure
• Mechanical exhausting devices

NOTICE: These are guidelines for successful venting of your pellet appliance. The more vertical rise you can obtain in your system,
the better it will perform. Horizontal vent runs can accumulate ash and will need to be cleaned more often. Try to keep them as short
as possible.

Tools Needed: Phillips head screwdriver, sheet metal
shears, measuring tape, gloves
1. The 10 screws on each set of scissors will already be
loose when shipped. Figure 32.1.
2. Expand scissors to desired height. Tighten screws to
hold in place using Phillips head screwdriver. 3. Measure front and side trims to required height
to cover scissors and mark pieces for cutting. Cut
excess material from top of trim’s edge, not bottom. This edge will be sharp; wear gloves to prevent injury
to your hands. Figure 32.2.
INSTALL FRONT TRIM LAST.
CORNERS OVERLAP SIDE
TRIM PIECES
CUT TOP EDGE OF TRIM,
NOT BOTTOM EDGE
Figure 32.2
4. Using sheet metal shears, cut trim along the marked
edge. The cut edge fits under lip of top trim, so it
allows for some variance in your straight edge. 5. The double-sided tape that holds front and side trims
to scissors has a powerful bonding adhesive. Adjustments are extremely difficult once trim has adhered to
tape. Do a dry run first without removing paper from
tape.
6. Place cut edge of trim under top lip and into position
on scissors. Place side pieces on first and then front
piece. The front piece overlaps side pieces. Decorative tile
may be installed
Figure 32.3
7. Once you are satisfied with the positioning, remove
trim and set aside.
8. Remove the paper from double-sided tape that is
to accept trim side. Align side and then press hard
against tape to secure side piece. Repeat for other
side. Install front trim piece last.
